Volvo TAMD 31 "smoke" problem

I am Japanese and living in Japan. But I bought a 9 yeas old sailing boat in Florida last month(Hallberg rassy 46) and sailed to Delawear.
For the next voyage, refit project needs for her. I will across the Atlantic on 2014 spring.

Now the engine is Volve TAMD 31S with Aqua drive and 4000 hours 50000miles . Harldly used then condition is not so good. Smoke alarem will ring over 1800rpm may be becouse of blowbygas. Also noisy not only engine maybe shaft.

I feel the engine need to do overhaul.


But I am seriously considering replace the engine to D3-110 or 4JH4-THE.
I really need Good mechanician around Delawear or Meryland.

Shoul I replace or do overhoul!



Best regards
Yoshi Wakao

Re: Hello everybody. New comer from Japan

Welcome to Cruisers Forum.

I found a Google reference to a similar sounding problem to yours.

Can you find an experienced mechanic to take a look at your engine?

Re: Volvo TAMD 31 "smoke" problem

Hello Boracay

Thank you for your message. I read them.
One problem is smoke alarm is sencetive. Another problem is TAMD31 has
a intercooler that has a small hole(original). Oil will drop from this small hole.
Engine temp is stable 85C. But after use over 2000rpm engine room is slightly
smoky.

I am looking for a good mechanic for replace my enigine around Maryland or
Delaewar.

Not only main engine but also need to replace Gen.
Gen is FischerPanada and already used 1900 hours.
Most HR owner replace it.
